Why Give to GTC?

Only two more days until Valley Gives! Here are a few more great reasons to give to GTC:

  1. Address the root causes of hunger, chronic disease, and food insecurity. We believe the root causes of these problems involve economic and racial inequality. In addition to growing food, we engage in undoing racism training, provide opportunities for youth development, and think creatively about generating more steady income streams for ourselves with the food we grow and sell.

    GTC creates a meaningful platform that empowers youth to develop many skills, grow their own food, and build a healthier lifestyle for themselves.

  2. Fund efforts that address the “big picture” while making concrete, tangible change. This year alone, five neighborhood and school groups started or plannedĀ gardens with our technical assistance.

    GTC is evolving, spreading its impact, and sharing its successes.

  3. Encourage biking and sustainability in Springfield. We transport all of our organic produce to our GTC EATS! customers and the local farmers market by bike.
    This past season alone, we collectively biked a total of 1,600 miles.
